Rocco has a beautiful piece up: Kaddish for the Cardinal, and he translates the La Croix coverage of the funeral. A commemorative plague for the Cardinal in Notre Dame Cathedral will read:
I was born Jewish.(I don't know about you, but reading that gave me goosebumps. RIP.)
I recived the name
Of my paternal grandfather, Aaron
Having become Christian
By faith and by Baptism,
I have remained Jewish
As did the Apostles.
I have as my patron saints
Aaron the High Priest,
Saint John the Apostle,
Holy Mary full of grace.
Named 139th archbishop of Paris
by His Holiness Pope John-Paul II,
I was enthroned in this Cathedral
on 27 February 1981,
And here I exercised my entire ministry.
Passers by, pray for me.
† Aaron Jean-Marie Cardinal Lustiger
Archevêque de Paris
